HEIGH-HO, SILVER!

The makers of Gladiator have struck a deal with Columbia Pictures to produce The Lone Ranger, Variety reports. Think 1998's The Mask of Zorro, but with cowboys and Indians in the Old West. Word is, Tonto — the hero's Indian scout sidekick — may even be reimagined as a fetching female! (Hmm... perhaps The Time Machine beauty Samantha Mumba would consider donning another loincloth?)
